Christitch, Elisabeth (O'Brien): London, (England)
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

It is like old times that Christitch is submitting four pages. She found it hard to dismiss "We Two" in a few lines. She knows well all that has been said against the (Lord and Lady) Aberdeens. Catholics in Ireland have called them hypocrites and officials at Dublin Castle spread the rumor that Lord Gaddo, their eldest son, had pawned crown jewels. Lady Aberdeen is always full of new projects. Annie comes away from her dead beat. She is accused of not paying her debts. She manages to get much work done for nothing, but she does pay her debts. She is genuine, and their love for each other is unique. Lady Aberdeen told Annie that Queen Mary had asked her not to introduce the members of the International Women's League at Court owing to the rumor that some are Bolshevist. This organization is usually accused of being too aristocratic. Christitch is quite decrepit. She has sent Hudson nothing to justify the check of six dollars that arrived on Christmas Day. She has no right to it, though she owns nothing but what generous Annie gives her.

Gamble, Anna Dill: York, P(ennsylvani)a
 to Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.: (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Gamble is sending some verses her brother (W.H. Gamble) sent her from Bonn-am-Rhein. He was an Anglican clergyman of Washington, D.C., where his home still is and where his wife is living. He is spending the winter at Bonn, studying romantic historiography and hopes to make literature his vocation. He has had verses and essays published in the Atlantic Monthly, as well as other magazines. Miss Cochran often speaks of their visit to Notre Dame.

Gamble, Anna Dill: York, Pennsylvania
 to Father (Daniel E.) Hudson, (C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Gamble is glad to hear that Hudson has accepted her brother's verses. They were not originally intended as a sequence but can be published any way that Hudson thinks best. Her brother's address will be enclosed so that Hudson can communicate directly with him if he wishes. She and Miss Cochran have been reading Maurice Francis Egan's recollections and enjoyed the chapter on Notre Dame.

Mercy, Sisters of: Johnstown, P(ennsylvani)a
 to (Father Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): Notre Dame, Indiana

They read a story in the Ave Maria in Oct., 1912, about two children who saw their Guardian Angel on their First Communion Day. One of the girls is a Sister in their community and the other is dead. Would it be possible to reprint this story without the name of the Community, of Cresson, or the town, Holidaysburg, where the event occurred?

Keppler, Wilhelmine S.: Stuttgart, (Germany)
 to Father (Daniel E. Hudson, C.S.C.): (Notre Dame, Indiana)

Keppler thanks Hudson for his checks of $60 and $65 for the sufferers in Germany. She gave 50 marks of it to help buy a home in Ulm to house orphans. From Ulm she went to Untermarchthal on the Danube to the Convent of the Sisters of Vincent de Paul. She gave them all she had left of the $60. Of the last $65, she gave $30 to one of her co-workers who is now seriously ill, and 20 marks to the aid society of their organization in Stuttgart. She will try to stretch the remaining 75 marks so as to aid as many as possible.
